My Calling -
Years ago, after my mom died, I realized I would dedicate my life to being of service to others that were facing death or, grieving the loss of a loved one. It has been 20 years in the making for me to be able to formalize this work. I’m so grateful for all the friends, family and bereaved clients that have allowed me to be present and walk with them on their individual grief paths. I too, grieve the loss of my parents, 2 brothers, 3 best friends, 6 aunts and uncles, 6 cousins, 4 beloved pets, divorce, jobs, and 6 major moves.
I became a Hospice volunteer and learned everything I could about pain and sorrow - how it manifests in our lives. I learned about the process of grief. I also learned there are no time limits to this thing we call grief and that, if not addressed or, allowed “to be”, acknowledged and moved through, one layer at a time, it can totally overcome us.
I have studied and researched death and dying. Slowly, I have built the groundwork for my life’s purpose. I have sat vigil for people that were transitioning. I have witnessed first-hand the passing of a loved one. I have written and given eulogies at funerals, I have written obituaries and helped families with their legacy projects that help turn pain into beautiful memories. I fearlessly and openly have conversations about death. To my dismay our western culture has sanitized and institutionalized it – made it a bad word. I know how it important it is to not be afraid of the subject.
Now more than ever we need bereavement counselors, and life and transition coaches.
Now is the time to reach out to those that have the energy, commitment and devotion to walking with you on your grief and sorrow or, end of life planning and legacy projects.
